June 27 is Canadian Multiculturalism Day. It is a day to celebrate the contributions of the diverse cultures that make up our home on Turtle Island, Canada. The day was first commemorated in 2003.
From June 20 to 27, the New Canadians Centre (NCC) will be organising the first Canadian Multiculturalism Festival in Nogojiwanong-Peterborough. Each year, the NCC supports over 1000 clients hailing from over 100 countries and speaking more than 70 different languages. Each of them brings unique customs, music, dance, food, sports, and stories contributing to a vibrant community.
We invite you to join us for a week of programming that tells a story of our multicultural Peterborough through performance, storytelling, film, and food.
